Beginners Dressmaking Day
Really enjoyable day with good tutors and lovely fellow sewers. A relaxed and friendly atmosphere in which to learn .
This beginner’s dressmaking class was excellent. Lucy made me feel comfortable and relaxed. She gave clear and helpful instructions. I couldn’t believe I had made a kimono in a day with very little previous experience. I loved the overlocker! Would highly recommend The Sewing institute. I’ve booked on to the Shirring class and Stretch fabric class - can’t wait.
I have spent a fortune in the past trying to learn the skill of dressmaking but never found the right environment or teacher and got nowhere, until now! Lucy is fantastic, & seems to make everything so much easier to understand. I had a great day with lovely people in this workshop and found it to be the perfect escape from work and stress. I am now the proud owner of a camisole top and can’t wait to start my next project. Will definitely return for more workshops and can highly recommend this to anyone thinking of improving their sewing skills, or just starting out. Beautiful environment, no shortage of equipment & the perfect space to learn.
